Our favorite annual showcase of new Francophone cinema returns April 25-29 for our biggest and most extensive line-up yet. Join us for five days of award-winning work from some of the most exciting new names in global cinema, in partnership with UniFrance, the French Embassy in the United States, and the Premiers Plans Festival d’Angers. The week will feature dialogues with Francophone filmmakers in-person, animations, shorts, music-themed and family programming, and more. AFS members are invited to a members-only champagne opening reception on April 25.
About the film:
**With Director Xavier Legrand in attendance!**
Winner of the Silver Lion Award for Best Director at the Venice Film Festival. Inspired equally by KRAMER VS. KRAMER and Stephen King, director Xavier Legrand weaves an ominous tale of a family caught up in a custody battle, and succeeds in creating what will be one of the most talked-about foreign-language films of the year.
Join us April 27th for the New French Cinema Week: CUSTODY!
